Long considered the biggest ski resort in the U.S., Big Sky lost its title a few years ago following the expansion of Park City in Utah. It does, however, remain the second biggest, on par with Vail in Colorado. Statistics aside, Big Sky still feels massive, thanks mostly to the immense vistas available at every angle.
Located near the world-famous Yellowstone Park, Big Sky has earned a reputation for small crowds. In fact, Big Sky is much less crowded than Park City or Vail, leaving skiers with the impression that they are one of the privileged few to access this enormous resort.
Discover Big Sky in combination with Jackson Hole in Wyoming, located just a few hours away—it’s a great 2 for 1 combo! No matter what you choose, the airports are just a stone’s throw away, eliminating the need for long transfers.
